2006 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I bought my 2006S in October 2010. i get about 27 mpg city and 30-34 mpg highway. Sunroof will bake the driver as there is no shade ! I am having it limo tinted. Performance is great but ride is VERY stiff. Potholes feel like craters. Great handling and fun to drive. Oil change at Mini dealer is over $100.. Had to buy a bra for it as the front attracts all rocks. I am 65 and feel like a kid again! Holds resale value well but Mini dealers are few and far away and costly. Get rid of the run flat tires but then you have no spare ! It turns heads wherever I go and is bright red.

Best Features

Performance , fun to drive and fuel economy. Seating is very comfortable and accommodates tall drivers easily.

Worst Features

Sun Shade needed for sunroof. Spare tire needed.
